Learning To Juggle


 After 40 minutes, doing exactly as they were told, a number of boys went from not knowing how to juggle to beginning to juggle.  Very clever!  We followed a very prescribe technique and now need to refine our skills.  Take a look.

Kiwiana Ply Wood Cut Outs

With our 10th birthday celebration looming we have been engaged in Kiwiana art.  We had to decide on a piece of Kiwiana that we would like to draw.  We then drew our choice, transferring this to a large piece of cardboard.  From here we made our cardboard drawings into stencils using craft knifes.

We used these stencils to draw our Kiwiana art onto plywood.

The power tools then came into play.  We used a drill to make holes so ...

A quick sandpaper and our art work is going to be reading to paint.
